To access the best loot in DMZ, you need to loot locked containers and buildings. You won’t be able to access these right away as they require a key to open. Here’s our guide on how to find and use keys in Warzone 2 DMZ.
Note: We’ll have a Warzone 2.0 guides and features hub coming soon, so stay tuned.
How to use keys in Warzone 2 DMZ
There are two main methods of obtaining keys. The easiest is to complete an HVT contract. Find an HVT contract marked on the map with a crosshair symbol. Pick it up, and then head over to the highlighted area. Somewhere in this area there will be a high-value target that has a guaranteed key drop.
The other method to obtain keys is by looting. Most lootable containers have a small chance of giving a key — and they are more common in Strongholds and Supply Drops. If you get unlucky, it can take a while to find a key in Warzone 2 DMZ, so it’s best to be patient.
Once you have a key you’ll need to head to the appropriate location to use it. Hovering over your key in your inventory will give you a rough indication of where to travel. For example, the Cavern Boat Dock Shack Key states that it can be used in grid D5. Look at your map and find where grid D5 is and head over there. Unfortunately, it doesn’t provide an exact location, so you will have to search around the area.
Somewhere in that area will be a locked container or building that can be unlocked with your key. Locked areas contain good loot such as three-plate armor vests, a lot of cash, and well-equipped contraband weapons. Be aware that if you die with keys in Warzone 2 DMZ, they will be lost forever. You can use your key stash which is accessed before you deploy to store keys that you don’t want to lose.
